  • Hello

    I noticed that Google lists my posts within 5 minutes or so from posting them. I’m using WP2.8.4, does it have a built-in SE ping service? or am I just lucky?

  • yes – wordpress uses Ping-O-Matic’s server ( by default.

    you can go further if desired

    Oops, sorry, I got the answer right from inside my admin area (Settings > Writing):

    Update Services

    When you publish a new post, WordPress automatically notifies the following site update services. For more about this, see Update Services on the Codex. Separate multiple service URLs with line breaks.

    Thanks so much samboll for your help.

    Samboll, I have the opposite problem, my site no longer pings. This stopped all of a sudden about a month ago. Before that it was pinging everything. Any idea what is happening? Please help! I am certain it is affecting my traffic negatively… 🙁

    go here
    and make sure you still have at least one ping service listed – near bottom of page

    Hi, for some reason pingomatic is not pinging my blog.
    how often you can use it, and wich other free sevice can I use.
